Thank God for fantasy football, as it has become my "Madden" of sorts in the past few years. The game just isn't the same as it was back in the Genesis/PS1 days. Even the PS2 versions were more enjoyable.

Well, to be fair, I don't think the Madden's on the PS1/Genesis can compare in terms of realism (the #1 complaint of most of us here). I remember enjoying some of them much more too, but I think that it has more to do with looking for something different at that time (more about the videogame than a simulation of NFL football). In any case, it doens't change the fact they've still got plenty of work to do.

I have to give it up to the OP.

To me he nailed the most important problem with madden for the last few years.

Its BORING.

I can't quite put my finger on it but the lack of atmosphere along with the fact that the game just seems like a chore to play really led me to not purchase it again this year.

I went with NCAA just because the recruiting and variation of teams at least holds my interest.

I rented Madden for a week from Blockbuster and I played a full season to get a feel for the game. I was honestly so bored that I felt ready to quit playing after week 5 of my season.

I hate how everything feels so unresponsive. I feel like I have no control on defense at all.

That's true. When you're twelve years old, it's fun to throw the ball all over the field, chuck one up into triple coverage and still come down with it and average 50 points per game. As you mature, so do your tastes and expectations. It could also be possible that I don't enjoy gaming as much as I did when I was a kid. However, I'm not sure that is always the case, because when I get my hands on a truly great game, I still have an awesome time playing it.
